Hi Juan, 

thanks for the hint. That could work, but i forgot to mention, that the previous function is quite expensive to compute, so I would like to update the first one only, if the slider for its parameter is touched. Right now i try to reduce the amount of recomputations with memoization using the joblib module, but I think I need a while to figure out when exactly values are cached.

Hi Marcel,

I'm guessing you only need to see the final output of the pipeline? Why not define your own function?

def piped(image, parameter1, parameter, another_parameter):
    a, b = previous_function(image, parameter1, parameter)
    new_image = next_function(image, a, b, another_parameter)
    return new_image

Then use that in your plugin?

Hi folks,

kind of a follow up question of my last one (see here). I still have a chain of image processing tasks, which I want to visualize with the image viewer. Certain parameters should be changed on the fly, where i can see the results in the image viwer immediately by the use of plugins. Something like this basically:

a, b  = previous_function(image, parameter1 = 0.002
= 0.02)
= next_function(image, a, b, another_parameter = 3)

I managed to pass the values a and b, generated by a previous function using Juan's hint with functools.


which was fine as long as I don't want to change parameter1 and parameter2 interactively. What do I do now, when I want to change them? 

Using functools here won't get me far, since now I want to be able to change parameter1 and parameter2 with a slider, as well as another_parameter.

Maybe there is still a way to achive this, I saw something like a callback argument for the widgets, but I am not sure how to use them or whether they are related to my problem at all. I would also be fine with writing my own Plugin class, but could not get my head around the given examples. I feel that something like this is quite common, so I hope there are already ways to achieve this.

Thanks a lot for the great work,
